AFEC Conference: “Competition law in the face of crises”

We are pleased to announce that AFEC is organizing a conference on June 6, 2023 from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm at ICC, 33-43 avenue du Président Wilson, 75016 Paris.

How do competition law(s) and the bodies in charge of its enforcement react to the various crises (economic, health, war with its energy or logistic consequences, climate) that companies are facing and to which they have to adapt?

To what extent does competition law allow to overcome crises and/or does it constitute an obstacle, a brake to the initiatives of economic operators?

Has the competition law been able to show flexibility in order to allow operators to overcome crises?
Is it desirable to make the rules evolve in view of long-term challenges?

These are some of the questions that lawyers, judges, legal directors and public authorities will try to answer. The aim is not only to assess the adaptability of competition law and practices, but also to formulate proposals to better meet the challenges posed by crises.

With the participation of Olivier Guersent , Ilja Pohland , Etienne Pfister, Camille Grimaldi, Anthony Le Gall, Fabrice Picod, Tony Vedie , Daniel Diot, Mathilde Boudou, Dominique Anract, Michel Ponsard and Frédéric Descrozaille.
